Heidegger’s Hut

by mistersoto

I’ve not read Heidegger, I’m not sure if I will, but this book offers a fascinating insight.

two quotes – (from wikiquote)

‘The most thought-provoking thing in our thought-provoking time is that we are still not thinking’

‘The possible ranks higher than the actual’

From the book description from the MIT Press –

‘There are many ways to interpret Heidegger’s hut – as the site of heroic confrontation between philosopher and existence; as the petit bourgeois escape of a misguided romantic; as a place overshadowed by fascism; or as an entirely unremarkable building. Heidegger’s Hut does not argue for any one reading, but guides readers toward their own possible interpretations of the importance of “die Hutte”‘.
